The Every Little Thing Square is a second free crochet 12-inch square pattern that I designed for the Wedding Blanket Crochet Along with the Red Heart Joy Creators!

The Wedding Blanket CAL
All of the Red Heart Joy Creators have joined together to create something special for our favorite social media person, Allison from Red Heart! Allison married her sweetheart earlier this year, so we created this Wedding Blanket, made of 12″ squares. ♥
So of course, we turned it into a crochet along for everyone to enjoy! You can follow along and get all the Wedding Blanket CAL patterns on MarlyBird.com!
I was honored to be asked to design two of the squares. The first was the Right Round Square (shown below)! Both names were inspired by one of my favorite wedding movies, The Wedding Singer.
Other Uses for the Every Little Thing Square Pattern
This square is a great addition to the MooglyCAL as an alternate or to make it bigger. Alternatively, you can make a blanket of all this pattern, or mix and match for your own custom creation!

Hello. Question about round 4 – in the ch 2 including the chain used to close the popcorn stitch or in addition to? I notice in your written instructions about the popcorn stitch that it doesn’t mention a closing chain, but your video does. Can you please clarify this for me? Thank you
Hi Katie! Great question! For this pattern, only ch 2 after pulling that loop through to create the popcorn. 🙂
